Why You Should Book Twig & Vine Photography

I’m Mamad from Twig & Vine Photography. I’m based smack between Nottingham and Derby, and regularly shoot weddings anywhere in the UK and throughout Europe.

I’ve been a photographer since, forever. I did O Level and A Level Photography back when I was at school. I then went on to study photography in Santa Barbara, California for my BA (Hons).

My background is in Fashion and  portraiture. I have photographed many famous pop stars for magazines and CD covers over the years.

I moved from London  to Nottingham 14 years ago when I met my wife, and started photographing weddings for the first time. I didn’t want to replicate the standard wedding photos that were seen everywhere at the time, instead I wanted to produce something more creative and exciting.

My Style

I love to create relaxed, “story telling”  wedding imagery shot in natural light without any posing involved. In order to achieve this, I include a completely free engagement session where couples and I can get to know each other a little better and help the couple to be a lot more relaxed in front of my camera.

During the wedding day itself, I generally try to stay out of everyone’s way as much as possible and simply photograph your day as it unfolds. I dedicate some time to photographing some family group shots after the ceremony, if the couple want them, and also, a couple’s shoot later on in the day. This is my favourite time of the wedding, firstly because I try to time it so the lighting is close to sunset, but also because I get to take some awesome shots of the newlyweds!

I really hope to get the chance to meet with you and hopefully tell the story of your big day!
